Scheduling an initial dental exam and teeth cleaning every six months will keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright!
Comprehensive Dental Exam
Your dentist will perform a comprehensive exam during your initial dental visit. This initial oral exam includes:
- Visual examination
- Diagnostic X-rays
- Teeth cleaning
- Periodontal probing
- Treatment recommendations
Routine Dental Checkup
Regular checkups every 6 months are good for both maintaining the health of your mouth and preventing disease from forming or developing.
During your checkup exam, your hygienist will perform the following:
- Screen for oral cancer: Identify mouth cancer in the early stages
- Evaluate gum disease: Look for signs of periodontal disease
- Check for cavities and tooth decay
- Examine existing restorations
Professional Dental Cleaning
As part of the teeth cleaning at your dental exam, your hygienist will:
- Remove tartar
- Remove plaque
- Polish your teeth
Our experienced dental hygienists will also take panoramic X-rays to examine your anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth. In addition, we’ll conduct bite-wing X-rays to determine proximal decay and diagnosis.
